Hypoxia’s Effects on the Shrimp Fishery in the Nor...

Our research is the first to investigate hypoxia’s effects on the harvest and economic dynamics of a Gulf of Mexico shrimp fishery. By linking hypoxia to impacts on fisheries, we ...

Impacts of Hypoxia on Fish and Fisheries in the No...

To protect fisheries and support ecosystem-based resource management in the northern Gulf of Mexico, we are developing modeling tools that will evaluate and simulate how large-scale changes in forcing factors ...

Mechanisms Controlling Hypoxia – Integrated Causal...

We’re examining the complex physical and biogeochemical relations that control and maintain the low-oxygen dead zone in the northern Gulf of Mexico (nGOM). We are combining field data from moored ...

Hypoxia Leads to Atlantic Croaker Decline in Gulf ...

A team of scientists led by Louisiana State University (LSU) developed a model to understand the impacts of hypoxia (low oxygen) on Atlantic croaker in the northern Gulf of Mexico. Results indicate ...
